Of Duo Charged in EDNY With Coke One Is Detained While Other Out on Bond to NJ Home

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book

EDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, Sept 21 -  In the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York on September 21, a detention or bond proceedings was held by Magistrate Judge Sanket J. Bulsara on two defendants. Inner City Press was there, the only media in the Mag Court, in EDNY too.

  The defendants were Christian Caicedo and Yhonny Alvarez Rivera, charged with cocaine sales in NY and NJ. Caicedo was assigned a Federal Defender, and was released on $50,000 bond after Judge Bulsara spoke by phone with his wife, a bartender, and his aunt, who last spoke with him in December.

  Yhonny Alvarez Rivera, assigned a CJA and using a Spanish language interpreter, was detained, without prejudice to applying at a later date for bond. After this was decided, Judge Bulsara asked if he'd mind be taken back into the holding cell, so that interpretation was no longer needed.

 The interpreter to her credit said she could sit behind him and whisper, simultaneous interpretation.

 If the Marshals agree, Judge Bulsara said. They did.

  As this proceeding ended to move to another, with an SDNY-based CJA, Caicedo was given a plastic bag of his belongings and case, and Alvarez Rivera was led back into the holding cell.

  Inner City Press is covering EDNY, in person, and has asked for the ability give to others to report in real time. We'll have more on this.

This case is US v. Caicedo and Alvarez Rivera, 22-mj-1029 (Bulsara)
